friday creative: holiday edition #1

today's friday creative is our first holiday edition, the first of many great photo gifts! it's a tartlet tin photo holder...
-small tartlet tin
-medium gauge wire like 18
-a drill (with a bit to match the thickness of the wire you're using)
-wire cutters
-wine cork
-knife & cutting board

how to:
-wrap wire around a marker/pen one and half times to make circle for photo holder.
-choose desired height of photo holder, adding the depth of tartlet tin, and snip wire with wire cutters.
-drill holes in tartlet tin and insert wire.
-trim cork so one long edge is flat (and more as necessary to fit the size of your tartlet tin). Then from underneath, push the wine cork onto the exposed wire (this will steady it).
-add a photo and then get ready because you will want to make bunches of these as holiday gifts!

happy friday!
xo, carly

p.s. just fyi, for those of you feeling a little overwhelmed by the diy this week, don't worry because next week is very biy (buy-it-yourself)!
